The Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including stronger 190 PSI steel, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands, available here

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any of the additional color options available, or even use any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 181.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Term Excellence I purchased this bar about 5 years ago around the time it was introduced. The bar continues to perform admirably after years of daily use. The only maintenance I perform is a yearly cleaning/lubrication with 3-in-1 oil and white lithium grease. The knurling is still in great shape and the collars spin smoothly. This is the perfect entry-level bar if you're looking to make the jump and purchase your first barbell. Be aware the black oxide will wear down over time to a dull green/silver. This is the only flaw, but is not unexpected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great Rogue product I brought this bar during the Matte Black Friday sale to be my box bar at my new CrossFit gym, and I am happy with that decision. Knurling is what I expected it to be. Spin wasn't the greatest out of the box, but by using the tips from Rogue to use 3 in 1 oil in the bushings, I got the thing spinning better than the bearing bars at our box. Also the black zinc is fading, but that is only an cosmetic feature so I am not too worried about it. (Bars are to be used, not looked at). I am a previous purchaser of the Ohio bar 1.2, (now sitting at my old box and still getting used) and this bar exceeds even that one. My only recommendation is to better lube the bars before shipping, so spin is good out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun bar! I bought this bar for me and my friends to use at the gym, I didn’t want an aggressive knurl and wanted good bend to the bar. My only wish is that they whip would show up before about 300lbs as I’m a very tiny female, but I’m not to far away. (Men’s Olympic bar) My male workout partners love it. It’s super comfortable and a blast to use. Here’s hoping I get to feel the whip someday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Rogue Bar 2.0 is great I was looking for the least expensive Oly bar that I could trust to last me a little while doing CrossFit workouts in my garage. The Rogue bar was exactly that. It is high-quality, good-looking, and it works great. I've only had it for about a month, but these are the exact same bars my CF gym has had for years, so I know it will last forever.
